Comments from the Toro Rosso drivers after qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix

Scott Speed:

"To be honest I was quite surprised to get through to Q2 here. P15 at Monza is not bad and if there are some reliability issues for others tomorrow, then maybe we can have a good race. The balance of the car has been pretty good since last week's test here and it is just in terms of our overall performance that we are losing out."

"The engine feels okay, pulling reasonably well down the long straight. I noticed there are more Americans in the crowd here than usual at a European race which is nice to see."

Tonio Liuzzi:

"Since yesterday, I've had problems with the car set-up and that continued today. That is a shame as without that I think we could have made it through to the second part of the session. Obviously here on this fast track, the V10 suffers a little bit, but even so, tomorrow I plan to give it my best shot here, especially for all the home fans."
